At the center of this whodunit is stage star Wylie Thornton, married but with several lovers. One is rich Doris Manning, whom Thornton plans to take with him to New York to costar in his new play. Another is cast member Anice Cresmer, who after hearing of this becomes distraught and kills herself. He's murdered, and there's no shortage of suspects. They include a jealous wife, jealous lovers, men who care about those lovers and a chimp. Only one person stands out though. That person isn't jealous, and isn't on headline hunting police captain and buffoon Marty Gallagher's radar. Gallagher arrests two good suspects, but it's up to methodical detective Jim Hanvey to solve the case, and when he does, well I won't spoil the surprise.
There is some good dialog, but not enough. Some good acting and the antics of the chimp saved this from the boring pile. There's a lot of nothing new in it. Another movie I enjoyed much more is Jim Hanvey, Detective
with a detective of the same name as the good one in this movie. Makes me wonder.
I downloaded the 699MB AVI file. The video was quite soft, making it hard to watch. The audio was Ok.
